A Lot of Fun Miracles
As a summer worker at Spruce Lake Retreat,Tamara Gill one day found herself in charge of moving a tall ladder to enable campers to reach a high rope swing, then quickly moving the ladder out of the way. Campers that week were people with disabilities and their families who had come for a Joni and Friends Family Retreat. A young adult camper we’ll call Rose cautiously stepped forward for her turn. With each step up the ladder, Tamara could see Rose’s legs wobbling more. Suddenly, Rose stopped and would not move. Despite much gentle encouragement by staff to try the swing, Rose eventually retreated to solid ground.
